This 12 story tall apartment building is the first high-rise building undertaken by construction technology specialist Prescient, and their tallest structure to date.
461 Dean in Brooklyn, formerly known as B2 Atlantic Yards, is the largest prefabricated structural building in the world.
The 32-storey tower is a residential development of 363 rental studio, one and two-bedroom apartments, 50 percent of which are designated as affordable to low- and middle- income households. The development also features 4,000 square-feet of retail space at its base.
461 Dean was designed by SHoP Architects and developed by by Forest City Ratner Companies. Modular construction consists of 930 steel modules, meaning around 60% of the construction has been developed off-site.
461 Dean is the first residential building to open at Pacific Park Brooklyn, a new neighbourhood that extends from 4th Avenue to Vanderbilt Avenue. For more information, see affordable.461dean.com
461 Dean’s modular apartment units feature floors of USAP Versaroc (19mm tongue-and-groove sealed).
Versaroc is a tough, durable and highly fire-resistant structural cement bonded particle board (CBPB).
Its outstanding performance in loading, resistance to moisture, durability and UL listed fire resistance make it ideal for span-rated floors construction.
With dimensional accuracy down to 1/16th inch, Versaroc is also highly suitable for modular building processes. More about Versaroc.
